Question: How do I convert a string into an Integer? [ Print this FAQ]
Answer: Due to changes in VB.NET and C#, when programming ASP.NET Web pages, developers must be aware of a variable's data type. Oftentimes, trying to assign a String variable to a variable of type Integer will result in a "Type Mismatch" error. To successfully convert a String into an Integer, you can use one of two techniques: via the
Parse method of the
// C# code
String sNumber = "123"; int iNumber = Int32.Parse(sNumber); ' VB.NET code Dim sNumber as String = "123" Dim iNumber as Integer = Int32.Parse(sNumber)
or via the
// C# code
String sNumber = "123"; int iNumber = Convert.ToInt32(sNumber); ' VB.NET code Dim sNumber as String = "123" Dim iNumber as Integer = Convert.ToInt32(sNumber)
